A facilitator will guide each group of career colleagues through a discussion outline while encouraging dynamic conversations on a variety of topics, from career marketing and job search, to career management, employment trends, and more!

Why attend Career Jam? Beyond learning from and sharing with professionals across the industry, the outcomes from all these events will be compiled and published by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium in a white paper. The white paper will recognize the contributions of all Career Jam participants. In other words, you'll be published in a widely read industry document distributed to career professionals, media outlets, and job seekers by CTL.
